Cinnamon is a spice from the brown bark of the cinnamon tree and a well-known flavor ingredient in many foods. Research has found that one gram of cinnamon—less than half a teaspoon—promotes normal blood sugar levels. Cinnamon contains an ingredient called methylhydroxy chalcone polymer (MHCP), which in addition to being a potent antioxidant, also improves insulin sensitivity. Cinnamon also has anti-clotting and anti-microbial properties; it supports healthy brain and colon function.
Add this warm and nutritive spice to your diet to improve your health. Cinnamon is tasty sprinkled on toast or cereal and also makes a great tea. You can add to curries and soups for an extra spicy flavor.
Always consult with your physician before stopping or starting any medication.
